Arrived after a very early morning flight from Birmingham Airport, found staff and accommodation to be very good. We had a two bedroom apartment which was next to Lisa and Eddies home. There are the owners. Very very kind staff, always looking out for you, very attentive. The apartments are on the front, so you can sit and have a meal looking out across the small road to the sea. Apartments cleaned every other day, beds and towels changed at the same time. Please be aware that you cannot flush anything but body waste down the toilet. We are used to this as have travelled to Turkey 6 times now, so we come prepared with Nappy Sacks. Food here is good and in line with prices elsewhere in the resort. the spirits we found extremely expensive £10 for a Jack Daniels, Malibu, Gin etc. that is 40TL each so be warned. Efes is 15/20 TL so I went on to Lager and Lime, had a laugh tying to explain I wanted Lime in my Lager, they call it Lime Syrup over there. Lucky for us we bought 2 Ltrs of JD at the airport on the way out. Had done all the trips on previous visits. So we went to Bodrum castle on the bus. Take the bus outside apartments to the bus station, then you need the No.6 to Bodrum, takes about 45 mins. The castle is down the front, well worth a visit, it is 30TL to get in, not 30 Euros as someone put on Trip Advisor. All in all a great holiday, we had the pool to ourselves some days, never got up to reserve a sun bed, always plenty. We stayed from 28th July to 11th August 2016. Would we go back here, definately but not straight away, have Olu Deniz in my sights for next year, but one day we will go back.
